The Girl
I am a Canadian girl. I travel/write/eat/play lots. I am still figuring out where to go from here. I keep my Bescherelle close. I have unhealthy obsessions with chocolate, commas, carousels and alliteration.
I am currently a student at the University of Ottawa majoring in English with a minor in Political Science, and an unofficial minor in Arabic (and procrastination!). I am on text-alert for cabinet appointments and the invasions of small- to medium-sized countries, and on Mondays I read Shakespeare. Needless to say, it's pretty freaking awesome.
Loves: Ballet. Adam Lambert. Books. (all there is to it)

Hates: The word hate. Smoking. Blisters. Horrible people. McDonalds. Bad music. Uncomfortable underwear. Awkward writing. Incompetent teachers. American spelling. Squash (the vegetable). People who hate more things than they love. Hypocrites.

Just to clear the deck, I own no monkeys.

I am a tree-hugging, globe-trotting, loud-singing, snow-eating, arabesque-doing, shakespeare-quoting, summer-living, fast-typing, impulse-buying, accent-using, procrastinating, english-french-arabic-and-swahili-speaking, music-listening, secretly-sparkling, nutella-addicted, pony-hugging, running-into-things, grammar-obsessing, non-fiction, rain-dancing, toga-sporting, fly-swatting, swash-buckling, late-night-writing, bonfire-loving, nalgene-toting, internetting, muffin-eating, holy imelda, bench-sitting, indecisively crazy-arse girl.
And I wanna hold your hand <3

"All stories are true. Some just never happened." -Neil Gaiman

"It's all witticisms until someone loses an eye." -shoebox_project

"The grass is not, in fact, greener on the other side of the fence. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be." -Robert Fulgham

"I am part of all I have read." -John Kieran

"But in this, I’m a raincloud – Ours is a story kind of love." -U2, The Sweetest Thing

"I want a sign. On one side, it will say 'Cite Your Source,' and on the other, 'Prove Your Work.' And I will go to places where people are expounding on things they have no personal experience with and I will hold it up, silently, a single beacon of reason in a world of Well It Stands To Reason, I Heard The Other Day, and Everyone Knows That." -lookingforwater

"If you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness, and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories--science fiction or otherwise. Which finally means may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." -Ray Bradbury
